CHRISTMAS That Favorite Time of The Year

Yes, Christmas is a favorite for me. The big tree in our home is Jesus's Birthday Tree. If not for Him we would have no reason to celebrate this time of year, contrary to what some believe. The word Christmas has Christs name in it and can never be changed.
Here are two pictures of our 9 ft. tree that is displayed in our front living room. It takes me a good week to get it assembled and decorated. Some of the rooms in our home are Victorian, with lots of whites.
From our home to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a New Year with promise.

CHRISTMAS Antique Ornaments

We have been collecting ornaments for years. I just love the antique and vintage ones. Here are a few of my favorite ornaments on our 9 ft. tree.
Some are of the Mercury Glass, one has the piece of tinsel in it. The longer one is foil with Mercury beads. I do have Mercury Glass strands on 3 areas of the tree. My most treasured are the Kugels and Spun Cotton ornaments that are at the top of the tree. Thus, unable to get close ups of them. We even have 3 dozen of the plastic glow in dark icicle. Those are my hubby's favorite.
